Top 4 Iconic Meals in France

Love French cuisine? Here are some standout regional delicacies we’re currently craving…

Quiche Lorraine

Hailing from Lorraine (where else?) in France’s Grand Est region, this silky golden pastry – a gorgeous blend of egg, cheese and bacon – is a staple on French restaurant menus.

Boeuf Bourguignon

Again, the clue’s in the name: this rich, warming beef dish was born in none other than Burgundy. Braised in local red wine and beef stock with chunky veg thrown in, it’s a winter favourite.

Salade Niçoise

There is some (heated) debate about what constitutes a proper salade niçoise, but most agree it requires tomatoes, eggs, black olives and tuna or anchovies. No cooked vegetables!

Heaven in a bowl for seafood lovers, bouillabaisse comes from the pulsing port city of Marseille and is eaten in summer, when the ocean’s heaving bounty is at its freshest.

    Bit disappointed not to see Cassoulet listed above, we enjoyed it immensely in Toulouse and again in Carcassonne. Made the Julia Child version few times at home. Quiche, Beef B, and Tuna Nicoise are frequently served up here too!
